VEND SEND MEND
For the past few months Jee-Shaun and I have been developing a fundraiser for Japan called VEND SEND MEND to raiser money for Doctors Without Borders to help victims of the disaster in Japan. We've received an excellent response from the illustration community and had over 60 illustrators from around the country (and Sweden!) contribute original works of art using vending machines as the theme! We hosted the event last night and will now sell the rest of the work online! Stay tuned!

Below is the finished version of our poster image. Jee-Shaun painted the actual machine and I handled all the objects inside. It was a fun collaboration!

I always forget how awful I am with taking pictures of events until it's too late. I forgot to take pictures for most of the show! Oh well, here are some pictures of what the gallery looked like filled with the art. It was a lot of fun and we're well on our way to raising substantial money for Doctors Without borders.
